-Paint refrigerator-Never mind. The fridge is sadly going to die soon, so we're waiting it out. Once it dies, we'll just buy a black one. Because we're

-Finish painting trim (including column)-Close, but no cigar.
-Touch up paint-Pretty much done.
-Upgrade electrical switches and outlets to GFCI-Nope.
